Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK)
St. Martha’s Early Learning Center is a Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) provider. VPK gives children a jump start by preparing them for school and enhancing their pre-reading, pre-math, language, and social skills. VPK classrooms offer high-quality programs that include high literacy standards, developmentally appropriate curricula, manageable class sizes, and qualified teachers. If you live in Florida and have a child who turns four years of age by September 1, your child is eligible for Florida’s free VPK program.
St. Martha’s Early Learning Center also provides child care before and after preschool hours. A summer program also is available. The first years of a child’s life are the most important learning years. Children who participate in structured, quality programs develop better language skills, social skills, and have fewer behavioral problems. St. Martha’s Early Learning Center fosters these skills for success in school and in life. Child care fees can be subsidized by Child Care Connection through the Early Learning Coalition. Assistance is based on a sliding scale.
